Anne: It does rather excite that response Elizabeth - though I think Lisl's suggestion that they are for grooming sounds a less fearsome one smile

For grooming, Anne?
Anne: I hadn't thought of that Lisl, it certainly sounds feasible. I haven't managed to find anything by Googling

OMG - so they do, and just imagine the minute scale of those barbs too. Takes your breath away!

They look hard but they are just hairs. Looks are deceiving.
Anne: I know, it's easy to get a bit carried away smile
Perhaps it is a sawfly?
Anne: I need to do a lot more Googling I think Bill
